While in Vorarlberg… I have visited one of the most amazing place possible: the Susanne Kaufmann Show Room in Bezau! Literally I could of stay there forever and it is easy to see why!
We love to travel, we love to spend time in nature, to go wild parties, to discover. And then… all these leave marks on our faces. I admit that not once in a morning after (party) I didn’t liked the look in the mirror. Like at all. Not to mention other sun damaging problems.
So, I become a little addicted to cosmetics – good quality ones – and vitamins and generally things that do good without long term problems. I decided to stay nice in my 50’s, 60’s and so on. You name it.
So is no wander why I wanted to visit local cosmetic factories and venues in my trip to Vroralberg. Kristen Preuss, from the Turism Board, was incredible nice to arrange two visits in the best places to be for a beauty addict. And the first will be:
Susanne Kaufmann Austrian BIO Natural Herbs Cosmetics Show Room
Where is the show room?
In Bezau city, Bregenzerwald region Vorarlberg. Bezau is a perfect village, that keeps entirely the tradition. The architecture is amazing and although inside everything is modern outside al looks like hundreds years ago. It is a blend of modern and tradition and innovation that is ubiquitous throughout Vorarlberg that I totally felt for.
The Susanne Haussmann show-room makes no exception. Outside is quaint. Inside, all minimal and functional and so welcoming.
The showroom is just opposite the Post Bezau Hotel, that has a Susanne Kaufmann SPA!

History of the brand
Susanne Kaufmann inherited the family’s business, Hotel Post Bezau. She aimed to use in the hotel’s SPA organic Austrian products, with a nice design and as she did not find in the market, she decides to … well, to produce them.
She wanted to use the miraculous plant properties of the Bregenzerwald – Bregenz forest in a modern formula. So she contacted the manufacturer Ingo Metzler, who has a modern factory close to Bezau and along with a dermatologist developed 24 products.
So the beginning there were 24 products. And then, thanks to the word of month, the demand increased. Therefore more products were added to the range and now, 10 years away, there are 77 products, distributed worldwide.
What I loved:
Beside the travel size products, which I am obsessed, the serums and face oils! Then, the Linea A Antiaging! If your skin is hardly challenged, you may want to give it a try, no matter age. Or go for the hydrating ranges, suitable for adolescents as well. Or the sunscreen ones. There is something for any skin related need! All in full range: make up remover, gels, creams for day, night, eye, masks, oils, serums you name it.
Here is also an online shop or you can purchase in Net a Porter or offline where are distributed the products. Also check in their website.
I have visited Vorarlberg at the invitation of Vorarlberg Tourism Board as part of the initiatives rolled by #visitvorarlberg office. Actually I actively approached them as the tiny Austrian state charmed me from the first online images.
My trip was a tailor made one, meaning I basically did only things depending on my interests. This was the absolute hype about this trip: gave me the opportunity to do the things I am genuinely attracted to and the visit to Susanne Kaufmann show-room was something I was so eager to see and learn about!
